A new banner poster for The Amazing Spider-Man 2 has popped up, revealing Spidey facing off against three villain in Time Square. Wait, three? Haven’t they learned anything? When has jamming multiple villains into a film ever worked out? Mind you, it could just be that Electro is the main villain and the other two only appear in the beginning and end of the film.
I won’t spoil the identity of the villains in question, even though it’s already all over the place, so I’ll throw the poster up after the jump!
Here is first trailer for Atom Egoyan’s West Memphis Three drama Devil’s Knot starring Reese Witherspoon as Pamela Hobbs, mother of Stevie Branch, one of the victims in the case. Colin Firth is the private investigator who worked for the accused. Devil’s Knot follows the true story of the case in which three teenagers were wrongfully charged with murdering three young boys in West Memphis, Arkansas in the 1990s. Check out the Wiki on this one.
The film got some pretty harsh reviews after it premiered at TIFF, I would proceed with caution as this seemed like a rushed piece of work after the West Memphis Three *spoiler alert* were released with ten-year suspended sentences, having served 18 years and 78 days in prison.
The story is fascinating and has been told in very great detail in the documentaries Paradise Lost and more recently West of Memphis. Check out those docs instead, you will be hooked.

If it’s January or February, you can be sure there’s a new Liam Neeson movie being released. So here we have Non-Stop, Liam Neeson plays a U.S. Air Marshall on a transatlantic flight and must stop a mysterious hijacker who is threatening to kill a passenger every 20 minutes unless his ransom demand is met.
The movie looks so absurd and fun, I only hope suspicious Julianne Moore isn’t doing anything wrong here.
Non-Stop opens February 28, 2014.
NBC’s fantastic series Hannibal has a creepy new poster to tease us with for another season of bloody goodness. It was my favorite new show of last season and returns in early 2014 with 13 episodes.
The psychological thriller is not for the squeamish; it has some of the most disturbing images I’ve ever seen on cable TV. I welcome it warmly.
Pushing Daisies creator Bryan Fuller had this to say about its implications for the new season while talking with EW:
After a horrifying descent into madness in season 1, this image ironically represents the perspective of a scrappier, clearer-minded Will Graham in season 2. The scales have fallen from his eyes and he finally sees Hannibal Lecter for the monster he is.
Check out the poster below:
Here is the first teaster trailer for director Denis Villeneuve’s (Incendies) Enemy, if that name sounds familiar it’s because his latest Prisoners also starring Jake Gyllenhal was just number one at the box office – so this is good timing.
In Enemy Gyllenhaal stars as a paranoid teacher who believes that he has found his exact doppelganger and he sets out to find out who this person is. It all sounds very interesting and I’m hearing out of the TIFF that it’s a pretty great show all around.
Hit the jump to check out the teaser trailer:
We have the trailer for Nicole Holofcener’s (writer of Friends With Money) comedy Enough Said. Julia Louis-Dreyfuss strikes up a relationship with fellow single parent James Gandolfini (who wouldn’t?) but soon discovers he’s the ex-husband of her new bestie Catherine Keener.
So here we are reminded once more that the late great Gandolfini was a terrific actor. Watching the trailer you can see how big and sweet he made this character. Dreyfuss deserves a nod for stepping away from the Elaine character over the past couple years – please no more sitcoms.
Enough Said will play at the Toronto International Film Festival before opening on September 20th.
Watch the trailer below.
Welcome to Vol. II of Poster Friday! I hope you all enjoyed last weeks post because I’ve got two brand new posters for you this week!
Hit the jump to find out which…if you dare.
Here is the first trailer for the dramatic thriller Prisoners. The film stars Hugh Jackman who sets out to track down the man he believes is responsible for kidnapping his daughter and her friend. The trailer shows a lot, so be warned.
City detective Jake Gyllenhaal is assigned to the case and seems pretty determined to find these girls, making promises left and right. The film also stars Paul Dano, Maria Bello, Terrence Howard, and Viola Davis.
Prisoners opens September 20th.
Keller Dover is facing every parent’s worst nightmare. His 6-year-old daughter and her young friend are missing, and as minutes turn to hours, panic sets in. The only lead is a dilapidated RV that had been parked on their street. Heading the investigation, Detective Loki arrests its driver, but a lack of evidence forces the only suspect’s release. Knowing his child’s life is at stake, the frantic Dover decides he has no choice but to take matters into his own hands.
Here is a great trailer and possibly even better poster for Guillaume Canet’s Blood Ties. The movie centers on two brothers, one that has been released from prison (Clive Owen) and the other is a cop (Billy Crudup) who is trying to help the jail bird out. The beautiful Marion Cotillard puts on her best New York accent as well, so there’s that.
The story takes place in New York in 1974, so that could account for the great poster which you can click on to view it full size. Check out the trailer below:
The film takes place in the folk music scene of New York’s Greenwich Village in the 1960s, it’s very Coen brothers. The cast is top notch, and once again the Coen’s have got the Goodman (that’s John) delivering what looks to be another great performance.
The film also stars Oscar Isaac and Carey Mulligan, Justin Timberlake, F. Murray Abraham, Garrett Hedlund, and Adam Driver. Inside Llewyn Davis will premiere at the Cannes Film Festival later this month and opens in theaters December 6th.
